Have you or a tomato-loving friend ever wanted a calendar that would tell you what to do at the right time to successfully grow tomatoes? If so, then Laura Taylor at tomatomatters.com has developed just the gift for you. Her beautifully illustrated wall calendar, 2013 Tomatoes: A Month-by-Month Guide to Growing Tomatoes, provides tips (color-coded by region) for preparing beds, buying plants, staking and other tomato-related activities. So no matter where you live in the US, you’ll know what to do when. In addition, the calendar features tempting recipes, such as one for Tomato and Sweet Onion Crisp.
I’ll be holding a drawing Sunday, December 16, 2012 to select the winner of a 2013 Tomatoes calendar. To enter, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, suggesting an idea for a garden-related story you would like to see posted on this blog in 2013 and beyond. Entries must be received by 2pm EST December 16, 2012 to be eligible.
Don’t delay! Enter today!
